This Week’s Sermon

Luke 18:9-14

1. The Self-Centered Pharisee (v. 9-12)
2. The Sinner’s Prayer (v. 13)
3. The Mercy of God (v. 13)
4. Going Home Justified (v. 14)

“The Pharisee was not rejoicing so much in his own clean bill of health, as in comparing it with
the diseases of others. He came to the doctor. It would have been more worthwhile to inform him
by confession of the things that were wrong with himself, instead of keeping his wounds secret
and having the nerve to crow over the scars of others. It is not surprising that the tax collector
went away cured, since he had not been ashamed of showing where he felt pain.”
